pdf export bug

I changed bleed setting (+2mm) and exported file in Pdf (pages), then suddenly all of the photos that were supposed to fill the whole page got split, with the small part of them shifting to theopposite page.
However, as I open it in Indesign again the problem seems to disappear. 
(I'm sorry for this silly question. I'm totally new to InDesign...)
Thank you beforehand!Снимок экрана 2022-12-28 в 0.30.12.png

Hi @Марта27721303kpmf , It looks like you included Bleed Marks but not Crop Marks— Bleed Marks align with the bleed edge, while Crop Marks align with the page trim. The white space is there to accommodate the printer marks, and the Inside Bleed with a facing page spread comes from the opposite page in the spread. If you don’t include any Marks there would be no space between the spread pages.

Bleed Marks vs. Crop Marks in the PDF Export Marks and Bleeds tab can be confusing. Make sure you have Crop Marks checked:

I can replicate your problem by checking Bleed Marks but not Crop Marks:

You don't appear to have added bleed to your trimmed page size or you haven't ticked "Use Document Bleed Settings" in the dialogue box.

If you are having the document commercially printed, check the required spec with your printer. Nowadays some printers do not want crop marks added and they want single pages (not spreads). Also the kind of PDF, such as PDF/X-4.

You've "requested" PDF to have extra bleed - to compensate for printing / cutting shift - but elements on your page are to the edges - not BEYOND - so you won't get what your printer is asking for anyway 😞

 

Can automate anything - as long as it doesn't require A.I.
